Four teenage girls have been suspended from their secondary school after being found with marijuana-laced cakes.
The four girls, aged between 13 and 14, were caught by teachers eating the drug-infused ‘space cakes’ and were suspended from Baines High School in Poulton-le-Fylde, Lancashire, as a result.
Lancashire Police said the incident has not been reported as a crime.
The headteacher, Roddy Mccowan, confirmed that the four pupils received fixed-term exclusions but would not comment on ‘individual cases’.
Head of governors David Jesson said: ‘The school has dealt with this immediately and a warning will also be sent out to pupils that this behaviour will not be tolerated.
‘It’s always a shock when this sort of thing happens. Unfortunately we have no control of pupils once they are out of school and I understand this product – this cake – was made at home and brought into school.’
